Is your real estate agent an expert marketer? Today, buyers use the internet more than any other source to find a home. It is vital that your real estate agent use a fully, integrated marketing plan to sell your home.

Here are just a few things you will want to make sure your agent has:

  • A website
  • An IDX property search
  • A way for buyers to search for homes from a mobile device
  • A blog
  • A Facebook business page
  • A Twitter account
  • A You Tube channel and video marketing

Because there are so many ways that buyers look for homes, it is important that your home is advertised where people are looking online (Facebook and Twitter). A blog will typically get your home high visibility in search engines. Speaking of search engines, You Tube, is a part of Google and buyers love videos.

Check out this website to see how all of these features work together to help the seller.

Sometimes reading the description of a home for sale can be like trying to interpret a foreign language. Some of the information is pretty straightforward but often agents use acronyms or other abbreviations to describe a home and that can leave a potential buyer confused.
